Oracle Java Standard Edition (SE) 6 Update 26 Released

As of June 7, 2011, the current version of the Oracle Java client is Java(TM) 6 Update 26.

Action Required:
If you see the Java Update icon or "Java Update Available" balloon in the lower right corner of the screen, the latest version of Java should be ready to install. You can click the icon and follow its prompts to apply the update.

Note: We recommend that you do not install any offered "extras" like Carbonite Backup, Microsoft's Bing Toolbar, MSN Toolbar, or OpenOffice.org Installer. Please un-check these options if they appear.

Or, our How To Update Sun's Java Software has complete steps on how to install Java from either the "Java Update Available" message or how to download and install Java manually .

Java SE 6 Update 26 contains 17 new security vulnerability fixes for Oracle Java SE. All these vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password.
